Fit in Your Skin

Exercising is difficult, at least for me.  What’s hardest is being motivated and going to a gym with a bunch of people who are usually in better shape than I am and of course I feel they’re all staring at me, the short, chubby uncoordinated one in the back who can’t quite keep up.  I know all it would take is some time and I’d be able to keep up with everyone else in the class but my shyness and lack of self confidence keeps me from going back.  I know if I had a physical problem, one that was noticeable to everyone, not just being out of shape I’d have a harder time going to the gym than I do now and of course I’d be inclined to just sit and veg.  Well, Jackie Warner is about to change that for people with psoriasis.

For those unfamiliar with psoriasis, it’s an auto-immune disease.  It’s the skin working on overdrive producing new skin before the old can slough off.  So what you end up with are hard scaly areas of all this excess skin called plaque.  I know people with psoriasis, both friends and relatives, and it can be life altering.  For some it’s able to be hidden by clothing for others it’s in areas that are harder to cover.  It can make you very self conscious and afraid to go out around people you don’t know.

Now you’re asking just what or how is Jackie Warner going to make any change for people with psoriasis.  I’ll tell you.  Jackie Warner is a fitness and nutrition expert who’s seen firsthand how psoriasis can affect a person’s life since her grandmother lived with the disease for many years.  She knows making healthy choices is important to those with psoriasis because they are at higher risk for other serious conditions like heart disease and obesity.  With that in mind Jackie’s teamed up with dermatologist and psoriasis expert Paul Yamauchi, M.D. and four people dealing with psoriasis and developed Fit in Your Skin.

It’s always hard choice when you starting in gym, and specially if you have this “crap”.
I can’t imagine people with face psoriasis walking around, I personally would feel discomfort. I have psoriasis on my legs and I know how hard it’s fighting against your body, because basically you fight against your body, right!

So anyway I’m pretty much ever day in gym working out, and eating health (I’m vegan btw) I don’t smoke, and don’t drink alcohol, and guess what I still have psoriasis, but it’s almost not existent.

Grate article and since Paul Yamauchi it’s involved, which I personally very respect I know this program it’s super quality.

Never lose hope
